B number: 
Principal applicant name: 
Hans Oh | University of Southern California (USA)
Title of project: 
Social determinants of health and psychotic experiences
Proposal summary: 

This study aims to investigate longitudinal associations between social determinants of health with psychosis spectrum symptoms (e.g., hallucinations, delusions), as well as whether associations between psychosis spectrum symptoms with later diagnosable conditions can be modified through social determinants of health.

Impact of research: 
At the conclusion of the analyses, we will have delineated a portrait of risk and resilience factors associated with psychotic experiences among children and adolescents. This information will aid in the identification factors that may attenuate these experiences, inform preventive interventions, aid in understanding mechanisms underlying the development of worsening experiences, and identify ways to reduce health disparities.
